I am not surprised your Tenere was a bit sleepy Pluric, Looks it was ridden pretty hard all week.

Looks like the YAMAHA cases held up OK. as well.
I'm not harshing, just sayn'. The BMW on the ride broke the bag mounting
hook off trying to keep the Tenere bags in sight. I had a lot of weight on
top of them too. 3 gallons of gas and some other stuff. Held great.

Sleeping? More like knocked out! Two months after I bought her (in Hungary), just after an amazing month-long ride to Sardinia and back, my wife and I get plowed into by a car on the way to visit my brother. Hungarian hospitals are no fun, but the bike got fixed good as new!

Ya mean me and the bike?? Ha ha, all three of us were okay. Beth and I went to the hospital, but just with cuts and abrasions and suspected internal stuff (but none thankfully)... gotta love kevlar! Beth was on a back-board, I rode shotgun in her ambulance, and we were both laughing and really really hoping it would buff right out so we wouldn't have to take the train back home. My brother didn't understand how we could want to get back on at all, let alone so fast, but I know you understand.

Hmmm, black H&B skid plate?! Are they available that way over there, or is it painted?

I want a black one, but I'm only finding silver around here.

Hmmm good to see - not too many sleeping Teneres lately! Here's my contribution... east coast of Baja







Fortunately there is plenty of traffic on that road, so it wasn't long before Baja racers returning home came along and helped me drag the Tenere out. Unfortunately, I didn't get photos or video of the funniest part. We decided it would be easier to surf the bike down the face of the berm to some solid ground off the side of the road, then ride about 50 metres where I'd be able to get back on the road. Well I haven't practiced my berm-surfing skills for a while. We righted the bike with me in the saddle, with the idea to ride diagonally across the face and get down the 3ft or so to solid ground. That didn't go so well... I started to move forward and almost immediately stuck out my right foot, of course there's no ground there, and the bike toppled over while I did a superman dive down the bank.

Now the bike was laying on its right side almost upside down on the bank. I wasn't too worried - I just thought "hmmm, I think I'm going to have to get used to the sight of the Tenere in unusual positions". From there we just dragged it on its side down the bank till we go to level ground. No damage apart from a few scratches.

Where exactly is that ?
Is it in Mexico or is it part of California ?
and ...and ...and.. Where do the bikes that go to "Baja" actually go ?

Questions... questions...

It is all in Mexico. Dirt sections are being paved really fast. You can go from the US
to Cabo all paved. There are still off road options. Some go in a ways and take a ferry over to the
mainland to continue further South or over to Copper Canyon. I'm not very good at giving
travel advice so I'll stop there. Other than to say I realy like riding in Mexico. Stay away
from the US border towns and larger cities. Never had a single issue and have only met
good people riding there.
